Tell me something you don't know...

« on: March 28, 2008, 11:20:43 AM »

I finished my last day at the dayjob today. (Today for most of you, yesterday for me -- had to have a few drinks to celebrate!).

I'm beyond thrilled now as I'll have time to really focus on things for myself.

(For those that don't know, the "jump" is going from working for someone else, to working for yourself.)

My own mISV is profitable and I certainly don't need to go out to get a job again if I don't want to. (I may if I get bored, but I don't see that happening. Although I already have a few companies chasing after me.)

Things will be hectic for the first month while I sort a few things out, but I'll be right on track in no time.

It hasn't hit me yet though. I still don't really "taste" it and it isn't very real. I think that I need that first month of things to hit me hard in the face that when I get up in the morning: the "office" is 2m away from me.

I'll post back when the dust clears! smiley

Congrats! That's a great chance to experience more freedom and to learn more about yourself more quickly at the same time.

I've never worked for any ******* as unreasonable and demanding as myself.
But, then again, I've never worked for anyone else.

It's okay, as long as the profits are high.

Thank-you all!

There's going to be a ton to do, and next week will be cleaning up loose ends, but after that, wow... I'll be able to finish up projects that have been sitting around for a year or more! smiley

When surveyed, most entrepreneurs said they don't want to have a job again even if they were to get twice the $ amount of what they were earning now. I can second that, it's a great experience even if the profits are NOT high!

Wow!  Congratulations Renegade!  I've been trying forever to get out of the consulting rat race, but none of my ideas has become profitable enough- It's very heartening to see someone do it!  I know how much work it takes, so kudos!  Enjoy your well deserved change in status!
